At about 12: 00 on October 18, an elevator crash occurred in all merchants in Focheng, Maitreya City, Honghe River, Yunnan Province. Up to now, the elevator crash has caused 3 deaths, 4 serious injuries and 13 minor injuries. The cause of the incident is under investigation.

At 4: 00 a.m. on October 19, Hongxing News visited Phase 1 of Fo Cheng Shangdu and found that the freight elevator and the elevator next to it had been blocked, while other passenger elevators and freight elevators in Fo Cheng Shangdu were still in operation. Reporters into the elevator is still in operation, see which are affixed with the use of special equipment signs. The text and scanning code information of "Special Equipment Use Mark" show that the next inspection date of elevators still in operation is May 2024.

Red Star News dialed the elevator safety prompt for people trapped or faulty. The area of the freight elevator involved was larger than that of the freight elevator still in operation, but there was no problem of exceeding the inspection date.

Doubt 1: Is there any situation beyond the inspection date?

Elevators still in operation are within the inspection period

After the incident, the existence of the elevator "disrepair" triggered speculation. So, how is the annual inspection of elevators in the city of Buddha?

At 4: 00 a.m. on October 19, Hongxing News visited the first phase of Fo Cheng Shangdu, where the incident occurred, and found that the freight elevator and the elevator next to it had been blocked. Other passenger elevators and freight elevators in Fo Cheng Shangdu were still in operation. The reporter entered the elevators that were still in operation and saw that they were all affixed with "Special Equipment Use Logo", and the user was Maitreya Jisheng Commercial Management Co., Ltd.

According to the code scanning information of "Special Equipment Use Mark", the elevators still in operation in Fo Cheng were manufactured in 2014. The installation supervision and inspection time is unknown, but it is still within the inspection time limit and will not need to be inspected again until May 2024. The scanning code information display also shows that the elevator equipment is a traction drive elevator.

Red Star News called the "elevator trapped or faulty phone number" on the elevator safety prompt to ask whether the elevator had exceeded the inspection deadline and other problems. The staff member who answered the call dismissed the claim, saying there would be "no other issues".

The reporter noted that according to the latest "elevator supervision and inspection and regular inspection rules" issued by the State Administration of market supervision and administration, regular inspection should be carried out according to the following cycle and requirements: elevators within 15 years shall be subject to a regular inspection in the 1st, 4th, 7th, 9th, 11th, 13th and 15th years respectively. The WeChat public number "China Special Inspection Person" of the China Special Equipment Inspection Association said in a document that, for example, an elevator will pass the supervision and inspection in 2020. Taking 2021 as the first year, the elevator should undergo a regular inspection in 2021, 2024, 2027, 2029, 2031, 2033 and 2035 respectively.

Doubt 2: Is the freight elevator where the incident occurred suspected to be "mixed with people and goods"?

Insiders: It is difficult for people to take the goods elevator normally to pose a danger.

According to the "maitreya release" informed, the cause of the incident is under investigation. Some netizens questioned that there was a mixed situation of people and goods in the freight elevator where the incident occurred all the year round.

Red Star News noticed that before the incident, passengers did not distinguish between freight elevators and passenger elevators in the video of self-media shops in the commercial capital of Foshan City. There were always many passengers in the freight elevators. During the reporter's visit, the enclosed elevator was marked with the word "freight elevator" and the equally eye-catching word "no manned. Some netizens believe that such irregular use has always been a hidden danger in elevators.

As to whether this situation constitutes a hidden danger, Mr. Zhou, an elevator sales engineer, told Hongxing News that from his professional experience, it is difficult for people to take the freight elevator normally to pose a danger, and the freight elevator itself needs to load carts or goods. In contrast, the passenger elevator carrying goods is more worthy of vigilance, but as long as it is a normal ride without overloading, it is difficult because "people into the goods elevator" "goods into the passenger elevator" constitutes a risk factor. Mr. Zhou said: "The daily maintenance of the elevator maintenance company is very important, and whether the management of the elevator user unit is in place is also very important."

The above-mentioned "Special Equipment Use Mark" scanning code information shows that the passenger elevator still in use has a rated load of 1000(kg) and a rated speed of 1.5 m/s, while the freight elevator still in use has a rated load of 2000(kg) and a rated speed of 1(m/s). The reporter's on-site visit found that the freight elevator involved in the incident was obviously wider than the freight elevator still in operation, and the operator of the "elevator trapped or malfunctioning telephone" also confirmed that the freight elevator involved in the incident was larger than the freight elevator still in operation.

At 4 o'clock in the morning on October 19, nearly ten farmers selling vegetables had gathered at the gate of the commercial capital of Buddha City, sitting along the gate. At 5: 00 a.m., merchants continued to carry fresh vegetables and meat into their stalls on the first floor. A farmer who took out celery on the first floor told Hongxing News that the merchants in Fo City are crowded every day, very lively, and the food is very easy to sell. Retail investors like her who sell vegetables at stalls are usually on the fourth floor, "but I don't know if I will let them go up today." If they are allowed, they will consider taking the escalator.

"Something big has happened. Don't take the elevator up." Farmers who set up stalls selling vegetables outside the first floor said to reporters who were walking to the elevator.

According to the official WeChat news of the Ministry of Emergency Management, at 12 o'clock on October 18, an elevator crash occurred in the city of Mile City, Honghe Prefecture, Yunnan Province. As of the evening of the 18th, 3 people were killed, 4 people were seriously injured, and 13 people were slightly injured. The treatment of the injured is in full swing and the cause of the incident is under investigation.

On October 19, a niece of the deceased told the extreme eye news reporter that his uncle had serious viscera damage and a wound on his chin, and died on the evening of the 18th.

Industry insiders said that now all aspects of the elevator protection mechanism is very sound, there will be multiple protection devices when it stalls, the possibility of the entire elevator falling directly is very small, I do not know why this incident will cause such a large number of casualties.

Niece of the deceased: Uncle's internal organs were seriously damaged

On the morning of October 19, the extreme eye news reporter learned from the authoritative department of Honghe Prefecture that the elevator involved was a freight elevator with a load of three tons. At the time of the incident, it fell directly from the second floor to the negative first floor, causing many casualties. The elevator was last tested in May 2023, and the test result was qualified. At present, relevant experts from the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration and the Ministry of Emergency Response have rushed to the scene, and the specific cause of the accident remains to be further investigated.

On the afternoon of the 19th, a niece of the deceased in the accident, Ms. Wang (surnamed Hua), told the Jimu News reporter that her uncle was in his fifties and had no children.

Ms. Wang said that the diagnosis materials issued by the hospital showed that his uncle's internal organs were seriously damaged and there were wounds on his chin.

"We are still waiting for the results of the government's investigation, and the family is also preparing for the uncle's funeral." Ms. Wang said that she had often purchased goods from Buddhist merchants before, but because of her large purchase volume and inconvenience of going upstairs and downstairs, she seldom went to the fourth floor to buy ingredients. On the morning of the 19th, she went to the commercial capital of Focheng again and saw that the elevator was still holding a cordon, and government staff were checking the scene. Ms. Wang also said that most of the people who take elevators in the commercial capital of Foshan are middle-aged and elderly people. Wednesday and Saturday are "market" days, and there will be more people selling and buying things in the market.

A picture of the scene after the incident obtained by the extreme eye news reporter showed that there were more than a dozen injured people sitting or lying in the elevator, many of whom had gray hair and many blood stains on the ground. In addition, goods such as vegetables and two metal trailers are inside the freight elevator.
